Alternative Careers: Looking to the Main Campus
The Symplicity job database and Career Advisor available through the Career Center web page are not the only electronic resources students ought to explore.
The Career Center on our main campus manages UO-JobLink, an electronic database providing students access to various employment opportunities. First, UO-JobLink provides access to UO’s On-Campus Recruiting program (OCR), an excellent way to explore alternative career opportunities. Through UO-JobLink, students may view OCR employers, research available jobs, submit transcripts and resumes, and schedule interviews. Common OCR employers include Big Four accounting firms, Intel, Fred Meyer, government agencies, and numerous other retail and management companies.
Second, UO-JobLink provides information about main campus career fairs, external job search links, and other career resources. By registering, students will receive email updates and announcements about open job positions and upcoming events.
Most jobs on UO-JobLink are non-legal, so the database allows students to find interesting alternative career opportunities and broaden their job searches to gain valuable experience. When broadening searches, think about long-term career goals, and consider non-legal jobs that provide exposure to industries around which a law practice can be built.
